The 1st Year MPPS Girls got their cup campaign off to a winning start on Thursday last against Alexandra College, Miltown.
The girls faced a stiff breeze in the first half, but absorbed any pressure easily, Goalie Niamh Richardson was quick of her lines and there was superb defending from a strong back line of Nessa Stagg, Aoibheann Price, Emer Gillespie and Leah Conway. The girls were unlucky not to be in front by half time with runs from Emily Walls and Sophie McLoughlin in particular taunting the Alexandra defence.
With the wind behind them in the second half, the MPPS girls upped the tempo. The midfield duo of Sian Ryan and Aoife Richardson turned on the style, skipping by players and passing timely balls to set up attack after attack. It wasn’t long before the ball found it’s way to Anna Burns and she made no mistake putting the girls 1 in front.
Ryan was quick to add a second with a well taken goal into the bottom left corner. Alannah Forde and Sadhbh Buckley worked tirelessly upfront, but it was Richardson who sealed the deal with a blistering shot which rattled the roof of the net.
Well done to all the girls involved.

Team: Goalie Niamh Richardson, Nessa Stagg, Aoibheann Price, Emer Gillespie, Leah Conway, Sophie McLoughlin, Sian Ryan, Aoife Richardson, Anna Burns, Emily Walls, Sadhbh Buckley, Alannah Forde.
